At St. Cyril we pride ourselves in offering the best complete education. Our departmental structure provides students several benefits including subject-specific teaching, cross-curriculum, a variety of environments, and time independence.

Curriculum design is the result of planning and study by faculty and administration. The Diocesan School Office provides guidelines that incorporate the requirements as set by the Arizona State Department of Public Instruction.​
